Jimmy Choo ILLICIT is one of those fragrances that draws you to someone from across the room. For me, it was love at first sniff. It is to release in mid-September in stores, so the seductiveness and almost addictive quality makes it perfect for fall. 

Here's the story: "alluring and mesmerising, ILLICIT is an instinctively seductive fragrance. Bending the rules without breaking them, she is dancing till dawn, the heart and soul of every party; she lives in the moment." Sky Ferreira is fittingly the face of the fragrance, as she embodies the spirit and flirtatiousness of the Jimmy Choo woman perfectly. 

Top Notes: Ginger and Bitter Orange

Heart: Rose and Sambac Jasmine

Dry Down: Honey-amber accord and Sandalwood

The lasting power of this scent is truly incredible. Fragrances tend to fade easily on my skin and very light florals lose their noticeability within a few hours. ILLICIT is edgy and cozy at the same time, thanks to the sparkling ginger and orange top notes, which then open up to the feminine heart of the fragrance, and mingle together with the warm amber and sandalwood in the dry down. It is described as a "floriental" which is the perfect term for the sweet honey-amber bottom notes. I've been wearing this since I got it and can safely say that it will be my new fall signature scent. I love the way it's carefree and flirty, but at the same time begs the wearer to be noticed for her sensuality.
